12th Nov 2019 - 20th Dec 2020
For the first time in seven years, Abbotsford's historic house will open it's doors in December for twelve days of Christmas magic! The house will be open Thursday - Sunday, 10am - 4pm, from 3rd- 20th December.
Step back in time to the winter of 1824 and a season of celebrations following the completion of building the house and gardens. Experience the interiors dressed beautifully for Christmas, see our Library tree with a literary twist and follow in the footsteps of Scott’s historic house guests as you listen to a special edition of our audio tour on your mobile device. A children's Festive Treasure Hunt through the house with prizes will ensure an exciting day out for every member of the family.
Plus, enjoy a winter walk through our woodland and riverside estate and in our beautiful walled gardens. Discover Scott's life story in our exhibition, find gifts and locally sourced products in our shop and grab a warm drink or delicious lunch from the cafe.
